Nie-fiksie / Non-fiction - Wetenskap & Geologie / Science & Geology
This books sets out to answer puzzles in nature and the environment: how is there such a neat fit between the coastlines of Africa and South America? Why is Table Mountain flat but the adjacent Twelve Apostles so rugged? Where does the pumice stone on the beaches of Arniston come from? What happens to cause a tsunami? How does rock get folded? etc. For each question there are explanations, be they geological, mineralogical, astronomic - whatever the field, the evidence is carefully presented and explained so that even those with little knowledge in these fields can understand the processes that have been at work. The book is vividly illustrated and supported with full colour photographs.
